Holiday Service and Cheers

Andrew Swanson | Jan 08, 2015

This past December, our Chicago and Grand Rapids offices took time to volunteer and give back to the local community. This year, our team members spent time packing, painting, decorating and contributing to support local charities and individuals.

In Chicago, we assembled and distributed care packages for those in need, furry friends and the brave men and women serving our country. Donations went to three organizations: Deborah’s Place, PAWS Chicago and Operation Gratitude. We also created smaller, personal bags that our street teams handed out to homeless individuals they encountered throughout the day.

Team members in our Chicago office took part in creating and assembling the bags given away by our street teams.

In Grand Rapids, we teamed up with Steepletown, Kitchen Sage and Kids’ Food Basket to assist in painting, cleaning, making treats and decorating bags. We also donated a big-screen television, art and craft supplies, and cold-weather apparel.

More members of our team joined the @kitchensage staff to decorate holiday treats and make a delicious “Blue Flame Hot Cocoa.”

Team members in both offices united in their enthusiasm and desire to help fellow community members and grow together as a group. We truly appreciate the opportunity to give back and make the world a little better and look forward to continuing to serve in 2015.
